The California Guitar Trio plays progressive rock, surf music, jazz, blues, country, probably the definitive version of "Bohemian Rhapsody," and some traditional North African and Asian sounds for good measure. And did you hear them at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival a few years ago, playing the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, minus the voices but with pretty much everything else intact? Like most Californians, the three members of the California Guitar Trio all come from someplace else: Bert Lams is Belgian, Hideyo Moriya is from Japan (where the band has a strong following), and Paul Richards is from Salt Lake City. All three felt the call to push themselves to the limit by enrolling in Robert Fripp’s challenging Guitar Craft courses, where they first met in 1987. They went on to tour together as part of Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists before forming The California Guitar Trio in Los Angeles four years later. The CGT is a melding of diverse talents unlike anything you've heard before, and one you can't afford to miss!
